Nice....nothing sounds like a good ol' 2smoke. So has the front wheel come off the ground on you yet? Those thing are wheelie machines. Good score

normally i would say the cafe but it looks way to long on that frame. maybe chop it down some.

Yeh currently 1st pic is better, but the cafe would look better pulled further forward like 79trip said.

I think that was a good choice. It would be hard to pass that off as a tracker.

ya gotta go with the cafe seat... shorten it a few inches, get rid of the rear fender/turn signals/grab rail mess and it'll look great!

My .02.......if you go with that set up, I think a slight stretch in the swingarm would help the "look". right now it looks ass heavy.
